First things first, the shocking image of the earthquake in Osaka was an horrible coincidence which was unavoidable unless the writers completely rewrote large portions of the episode and there would still be plenty of logistical problems. Things work like that sometimes and when the episode is shot months in advance, there’s really nothing anyone can do.
Just when Kate is ready to do something for once, she turns back and is left with no options. She just can’t escape Kansas and everything in it. Max throws out his old stuff in his mother’s house and we learn from their conversations that his mother isn’t right in the head, and we get the impression that Max is more or less fine with people like his mother and Tara, people who need serious help.
The alters seem to be coming out to help Tara, as Alice suggests after she helps Charmaine with the baby shower. Even Buck is trying to help, searching for Tara and Charmaine’s brother. But T comes out the end of the episode and has to ruin things while putting tons of strain on Charmaine.
